Ubuntu :: Faster Download Speed - Utilize Internet Connection Better?

Jun 24, 2011

So I switch between Ubuntu and Windows alot, because some games I can only get to run smoothly in the windows environment. Anyways, one thing I have been noticing ever since I got Ubuntu but never really questioned, was about my download speeds. When downloading a torrent in Windows, I topped out out about 2.0 mb/s. Where as in my Ubuntu install, running the same torrent program (utorrent) and downloading the same file, I was getting 3.0 mb/s. I was wondering, what is it about Ubuntu that is utilizing my internet connection better? Only a hand ful of times have I ever reached 3.0 in my windows install (such as right now while I am downloading a game through steam).

Software :: BitToClients Utilize Bandwidth For Faster Downloading?

Feb 26, 2010

The three I have narrowed it down to are Deluge, BitTornado or Azureus/Vuze (are they different clients??). What I really need to know is which one will allow me greatest control of my torrents, and which one will utitlise bandwidth best for faster downloading. It is important, as I tend to download LARGE torrents (currently have one which is over 200GB in size), but they usually aren't smaller than about 4GB. How much system resources they use are not a major issue, though obviously lighter is preferrable. I just need the speed and control.

General :: Combine Two Internet Connections To Get A Faster Connection?

Oct 25, 2010

I am using Red Hat Linux enterpriser 4 using two physical LAN cards.There are two different ISP internet lines coming into a single gateway computer. Is it possible that if in our one network we are using 2 MB bandwidth and from another network we are getting 2 MB bandwidth.(Two different Networks) and combine it into 4 MB. In bonding it combine the bandwidth or it do loadbalancing ?

The question is can we accumulate or add these two bandwidth in Linux machine and it sent total bandwidth 4 to the end users ?

Ubuntu :: Low Internet Download Speed ?

Jun 11, 2010

Ubuntu version 10.04. until day before yesterday, everything is working fine but now specific problem arises that is my internet download become 1/4th than usual.

Heres the story: i have internet (LAN) connection of 512 kbps. when i tries to download anything, using (syneptic, firefox default downloader, jdownloader) the download speed i get is 10-20 kb/s which should be 50-60 kb/s. the limited downloading speed is only when i tried to download a file; browsing n online video content play at max. speed i.e. 50-60 kb/s. i m using net speed panel applet to monitor current net speed.

Here is something unexpected: during downloading, when i start a game(openTTD or battle of wesnoth), downloading speed accelerated to max. (50-60 kb/s) but when i close the game, it drop back to 10-20 kb/s. so definitely this isn't the problem with the net.

Ubuntu :: Slow Download Speed On Wireless Connection

Jun 5, 2010

Basically the problem is a slow download speed over my wireless connection that does not occur in Windows Vista. The reason I'm so annoyed is that the speed is not constantly slow. It bursts at around 600kb/s (good for my internet connection). The problem is that while trying to download a file it bursts for about a second,then total throughput decreases to +/- 1kb/s for a few seconds, then another burst and so on. Note the file I'm downloading is a http:// download, not p2p or anything. I've attached a screenshot of the System Monitor.

Some additional info. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with all available updates installed. The browser in use is Google Chrome.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 - Low Download Speed On Wireless Connection

Feb 22, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop using the Wubi installer. Everything seems to be working fine except for my wireless connection. When I plug in my wired connection and test on speedtest.net I get download speeds of 20MB/second. However, when I switch to my wireless connection, I barely break 1MB/second. I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter. I have scoured this forum, Google, everywhere I can think of to find a solution and none seem to work for me. I love Ubuntu but this might be a deal breaker...

Jul 30, 2011

So i am very new to linux based OS. Just started getting used to the terminal. but my problem is i am trying to install a game on steam and it is downloading very slow. i am used to getting close to 700 kb/s on windows 7 but on ubuntu 11.04 i am only getting 170-180 max. now i have searched all over and tried to fix it on my own but i just cant figure it out and am getting very frustrated. so if anybody has an idea as to how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. (have looked through the forum by the way but as i said im new to linux and im not actually sure if im looking at the right things) but im using a wired connection. it says im connected to something called auto etho. and there is something called a loopback connection or something like that.

General :: Wireless Networking - Wi-Fi Connection Download Speed Is Cut In Half In Mint?

Sep 19, 2011

I have a pretty decent DSL connection that usually gave me about 105KB/second download speed over wifi. The "official" download speed was 1.5 megabits so I should have been getting a bit more, but that's not my question.

I recently switched to Mint from Ubuntu. Now my download speed is significantly slower, to the tune of 45 KB/second. Since the connection runs at normal speed when I connect via an ethernet cable, my guess is that mint doesn't give enough power to the wifi card. Is there any way I can fix that?

General :: Monitoring Internet Connection Speed?

Jul 30, 2010


I'm trying to find a good host for my site, and I've been trying to get one with a fast, reliable connection - I frequently use it as a proxy server for various areas, and since my connection is frequently a 50 Mb or 100 Mb line, I need a fast network connection so it doesn't slow down too much when I switch to the proxy server.

At the moment, I've narrowed it down to a couple of providers that are all within a few hops and <6ms away from my main location; it pretty much comes down to connection speed. One in particular that I'm trialing offers an metered 100100 connection at a good price, so I'm hoping to go with them, but I want to make sure the connection is solid and doesn't drop to a much lower speed during the day if they are sharing it among many users.

I have a pretty simple speed test procedure - I use wget on a 1GB file hosted on a backbone with a 1GB connection, and see how fast it downloads. For now, it's sticking at a steady 11.2 MBs or 90 Mbs, which is fast enough for me, but I need to make sure it can maintain that speed even in times of heavy usage.


Basically, I need a script that runs wget every half hour and logs the output and time in a reasonably readable format. It's probably something simple enough to do, but I'm just learning my way around the linux command shell, so some simple instructions on how to create and run such a script would be great [CentOS 5]. I have full root access to the server and I'm the only user on it if it matters.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Download Or Update Because Of Internet Connection

Mar 23, 2011

I tried to download some software from the Ubuntu software center, and it does not download. It does not give me an error message, it just stays at 0 bytes. It eventually tells me to check my internet connection. (this does not make sense because I am using it to write this thread) I checked synaptic package manager for correct proxy settings and it was ok. I ran

sudo apt-get update

but to no avail. I am using wireless, and recently dissembled the computer to disconnect the CMOS battery, but I think that it was put back together properly.

General :: Create Tunnel To Utilize For Telnet Connection?

Nov 8, 2010

Machine A is located behind client firewall. The machine runs telnetd. This is Linux machine with Python 2.5.4 installed. I do not know the IP addy of the router and firewall is not open incoming. outgoing firewall is open.

Machine B (Windows machine) is a server with well known IP address. I can install any programs I want on either machine.

The idea is that I want Machine A to open a socket to machine B. Then I want to hold that socket and use to run a telnet session from Machine B to Machine A telnetd server.

Fedora :: Install Mplayer On 13 - Package Download Failed - Check Internet Connection

I recently decided that I want to install mplayer on fedora 13. Problem is, everytime I try, a new problem arises. I've tried add/remove software, and it said "package download failed, check internet connection" which doesn't make sense because I'm connected to the internet and my connection is fine. So, then I tried yum install mplayer, that gave me an error.

SUSE :: Firefox Download Manager Faster Than KTorrent ?

Apr 10, 2010

Friend of mine without broadband asked me to download the latest stable release of Mandriva. I started the download with KTorrent and after about 45 minutes came back to check progress and found that the ETA had gone up to around 10 hours for a 4.3 odd GB .iso. Wow thats a long time., I checked network utilization using the graph is System Monitor and we were running around 80 KB/sec. Paused KTorrent and opened Firefox, telling it to download the .iso from the ,edu site. I was very surprised when network utilization went to around 1000 kb/sec and the time to finish was much less (according to the Firefox download manager I have 13% of the file on hand and time to go is 1 hr 11 minutes). I had always been under the impression that any torrent client would be a lot faster than a straight download.......

The ISP here is Comcast. We pay for 6 mb down and around 2 up and routinely get it. The machine is a core quad with 2 GB of RAM. OS is OpenSuse 11.2-64 bit.

So what gives here. Is the torrent site that much slower than a straight download?? Or or could it be something the ISP is doing with torrent activity? I dont know enough about network protocol to know but I found the time difference and the amount of network utilization very surprising.

Ubuntu Networking :: OpenVPN Bridge - Cannot Get Faster Connection

I have an openvpn bridge up and running (ubuntu to ubuntu, both in vmware fusion machines on macs). My problem is that I cannot get a connection faster than ~9mbps even though 20+mbps is available. I've been troubleshooting for a while and have tried many fixes. I just now did ethtool tap0 and I think maybe I found it. It says the link is 10mbps. I tried to change it with:
sudo ethtool -s tap0 speed 100
but it says ethtool cant change speed on tap0. How can i define the link speed of tap0?

Networking :: Script For Faster Internet Experience

Feb 27, 2011

I came to know about namebench tool while working on a setup of DNS server, test results showed some servers working pretty fast. After investigating different options and many tests i managed to keep a good rank of DNS slave server. The idea was to keep checking available fastest DNS servers in the region and modify named.conf accordingly.As many of us are not building a DNS server, I am not going to discuss it in details here, however in case you are using some flavour of GNU/Linux, UNIX you can use following method to have a faster internet experience.

To have it accomplished we are going to use namebench, cron and a small script. namebench looks for the fastest DNS (Domain Name System) servers accessible to your computer.
